Alamo PMI April 2021 Monthly Meeting

Strategic Business Management skills

Exploring Futures in a Disrupted World by Dr Jose Lugo-Santiago, ASQ CMQ/OE, PMP, CLSSMBB

Presentation Description

The question is no longer, “How can we be more effective and efficient?” The question now is, “How can we remain relevant in a world that has changed and will change even more?”

The truth is the current and on-going environmental, social, political, and economical situation has closed some futures but has opened others. We see divergent and convergent futures.

Dr. LugoSantiago, Chief Futurist at the Institute of Leadership & Strategic Foresight, will be “workshoping” the future through the exploration of Converging & Divergent Futures.

The discussion and tools will illuminate your future by helping you see what’s emerging, what’s driving change, how you can do risk assessments, and co-create alliances to seize opportunity in a future marked with uncertainty.

Presentation Objectives

Strategic & Business Management: Understand and spot waves of change at the fringes 

Leadership: Grow a leadership strategy based on foresight to seize opportunity

Technical: Conceptually learn two tools to support future ideation




Dr. LugoSantiago is an executive leader, strategy expert, proud U.S. Air Force Veteran, speaker, and three-time published author with +20 years of extensive knowledge and experience in Strategy, Project and Change Management, Organizational Development, and Business Process Re-engineering.

As Chief Futurist for the Institute for Leadership and Strategic Foresight he has done extensive research in the area of the future of cities with an international publisher publishing his ground-breaking research in 2020 in a book titled, Leadership and Strategic Foresight in Smart Cities: A Futures Thinking Model.
